No more roaming charges in EU!

A common thing I do after entering a new country is to look for a local pre paid SIM card to avoid expensive roaming charges. After June 15th, I do not need to worry anymore as I can use my home SIM card anywhere in the EU as if I was at home.

There are some differences as, for example, when calling an Italian marina from Italy, I will be paying an international call as if I was calling that marina from Portugal. Since my main usage is internet, that will not be a problem. I hope this information is useful to other sailors (I was not aware of this until today)!
